The GEL-GLIDELYTE™ III model is an embodiment of ASICS technology and craftsmanship, merging two of their most iconic silhouettes; The GEL-LYTE™ III and the GLIDERIDE™ models – famed for saving runners energy via its GUIDESOLE™ technology present within the curved sole.
This shape minimises lower leg movement through each stride, giving the runner a feeling of seamless coasting. The upper design language is inspired by the GEL-LYTE™ III shoe with the split tongue and the asymmetric toe window near the front of the model.
A PU part, inspired by the GEL-NIMBUS™ 5 model, runs across the upper with a back counter construction of overlaying mesh, reminiscent of the GEL-HOCKEY TYPHOON 2 model. The GUIDESOLE™ technology rounds off the design element of the sneaker, providing an increased feeling of comfort, stability and a cushioned ride for the wearer.
The Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS GEL-GLIDELYTE™ III, will be released under ASICS SportStyle on the 13th of November, in Asphalt/High Rise and Red Bud/Fire Brick available in selected Australian retailers – Above The Clouds, Up There, Laced and Sneakerboy.
